Lockheed Martin announced its participation in and sponsorship of the Bahrain International Airshow (BIAS) 2024. The company will have a stand in the exhibition hall and a dedicated chalet at the event.

“A relationship spanning decades, Bahrain was the first country in the region to adopt Lockheed Martin’s F-16 aircraft, for the Royal Bahraini Air Force, and in early 2023 became the first country in the world to receive delivery of the first F-16 Block 70 fighter jet from the manufacturer,” UK-based airshow consultancy Farnborough International said.

The contract was signed at the Paris Air Show by Yousif Mahmoud, the director-general of the Bahrain International Airshow, and Craig Spyhalski, international air and show trade lead at Lockheed Martin. Bahrain’s Minister of Transportation and Telecommunication Mohammed Al-Kaabi was also present.

The airshow, which will take place from 13-15 November 2024 at Sakhir Airbase in Bahrain, is organized by the Bahraini Ministry of Transportation and Telecommunications and the Royal Bahraini Air Force, in association with Farnborough International.

The show is designed to reflect the demands of the aerospace and defense industry and will harness global expertise to provide crucial thought leadership and insight, Farnborough International said.

“Now in its seventh year, BIAS has cemented itself as a must-attend biennial event in the aerospace and defense industry, renowned for bringing the best and brightest of the aerospace industry in an intimate platform to do business,” the organization added.

The airshow is held under the patronage of Bahrain’s King Hamad, and under the supervision of Sheikh Abdullah bin Hamad, the personal representative of the King and the Chairman of the event’s Supreme Organizing Committee.
